If you are not interested, <DELETE> now...
 
Many of you have prompted me to post the info about the trip as you are
planning or wishing you were planning a trip to Texas. Let me say first a
big thank you to Edge Wade, Joyce Bathke, Kathleen and Harold Anderson, and
Tommie Rogers for providing me with MUCH information that was very valuable
to us on our trip.
 
The members of the group were, Dency Kahn, St. Louis; Jack Cowan, St. Louis;
Peter Kondrashov, Maryville; and Patrick Harrison, Shelbyville.
 
Despite the apparent inability to discern left from right, 6th street from
9th street, Stewart Street from Standard Street, Harlingen exit from
Raymondville exit, etc., etc., etc., (Yes, we were "navigationally
challenged...") we had a SUPER TIME! Not bad for 2.5 days of birding...
 
The information below shows the birds and the location of the FIRST sighting
of the species...
